is all about 

Spring 'Prea^ 

It's that time again... what to do for 
spring break? Most want to get as 
far away as possible. The rest 
either have no money or are not 
adventurous people. In order to 
help you, here are some ideas to 
keep in mind. 

Many students have planned for 
months for spring break while 
others are flying by the seat of their 
pants. Here are what a few of your 
fellow classmates are doing for 
spring break. 

"I'm going to Cancun with my 
brother and some high school 
friends. " 

Haysville sophomore 
Dylon Storey 

"I'm recording two songs, going 
camping and going to Padre. " 

Danial Porter 
El Dorado sophomore 

"Going home to Overland Park and 
working at Structure. " 

Shawn Wittkoph 
Gardner freshman 

"Going car shopping. " 

Katy Mitchell

So, it's about time to think 
of your plans for the break. 
You are in panic mode 
because funds are low and 
your last paycheck didn't 
quite cut it. We decided to 
help you out and give you a 
few ideas to keep you from 
dying of boredom.

All right. Your parents have a 
bottomless account at the bank 
and have told you that you can go 
anywhere you want for spring 
break. Awesome! An all-expense 
paid for trip. But one question... 
where to go? Either go overboard 
and head to the Bahamas or save 
a little and go to the spring break 
capital of the world, Florida. Can't 
decide? How about some ideas? 
•Go skiing in Colorado. 
•Visit the Mall of America. 
•Go Whitewater rafting. 
• Party central in Florida. You can 

even get in touch with your 
childish side and visit Disneyworld 
while you're at it. 

• Fly out to New York and do 
some real shopping and make 
sure to stop at some of those 
famous coffee shops while there. 

• Travel to the West coast and 
take surfing lessons. 

•Take a cruise. 

• Rent a nice fast car and take a 
road trip across the United States. 
•Travel to Hawaii and chill out at 
a luau.

Bear Hunt is Butler's open house where many 
activities are planned for high school students and 
others wanting to come and find out about the school. 
This year they have planned two open houses. One 
was on Nov. 11, and there will be another one on 
March 31 . This is the first year that they are having two 
Bear Hunts. 

"November's Bear Hunt was put in place to try 
to reach more seniors and their parents before they 

decide where to go to college, since many are deciding 
early," says director of enrollment management Paul 

The day's activities include potential students 
talking with deans and advisers, "campus tours," 
information booths and door prizes and a performance 
by The Smorgaschords at lunch. 

Bear Hunt was started approximately five years 
ago. Director of Admissions Neil Holting and Kyle came

up with the idea for Bear Hunt. 

"There was already senior day, but we thought 
that more students and parents could come on a 
Saturday than a weekday," says Kyle. 

There were 270 who attended Bear Hunt last 
year. One-hundred to 200 were expected for the 
November Bear Hunt. Even more are expected for 

"Encourage students and parents to come and 

join in on the fun," says Kyle. 

The open houses have been very successful. 
Surveys are mailed out to give those attending a 
chance to tell what they thought and to give 
suggestions for the next Bear Hunt. 

"So far there have been no bad comments," 
said Chad Steinkamp, admissions. 

Registration is required to attend Bear Hunt.

BCTV is Butler County 
Community College's cable TV 
station. A part of the Media 
Resource Center, it has many 
projects they film for the college 
and surrounding communities. 
They also have weekly 
programming that features much of 
the work they have done 
throughout the years. 

BCTV started in the mid- 
1980s as a delivery system for 
Butler. Its main purpose was and 
is to play telecourse programs for 
people who wanted to take their 
courses over television at home. 
These courses then meet once 
every so many weeks with an 

instructor to go 
over material. 

BCTV also 
produces weekly 
shows. "The 

Coaches' Show" is 
a weekly program 
that gives the 
coaches a chance 
to talk about past 
and upcoming 
games. They also 
produce a show 
called "In Focus." 
"In Focus" is a 
weekly show that 
gives clients and people around the 
community a chance to talk about 
their upcoming events. 

BCTV has also done many 
documentaries. BCTV has just 
recently made a documentary of 
Dreamworks coming to El Dorado 
to promote their movie "The Road 
to El Dorado." 

Renato Sobrevihas, who is 
the director and producer of BCTV, 
has traveled to places like Mexico 
and the Philippines. Renato said, "I 
made a documentary called 
'Grateful Dancers,' which I filmed in 
Mexico on my vacation." In 1993 
BCTV made documentaries and 
commercials to help save the

historic depot in downtown El 
Dorado. They also promoted the 
renovation of the El Dorado Middle 
School auditorium. 

BCTV also employs 
college students to help with filming 
and playback. Playback is the 
system which puts the programs 
out into the cable station channel 
43. Renato said, "It gives the 
students a chance to get the 
experience in communications and 
to help them learn the real life work 

skills they need." 

BCTV also does live 
broadcasts. They film the 
candidates' forum, which takes 
place at Butler. It gives the 
community a chance to get to know 
the candidates running for office in 
Butler County. 

BCTV also did a special 
broadcast to help promote the 
artwork of a lady called Grandma 
Layton. This is a woman that 
started doing art after her kids had 

grown up. They have also 
produced many series for the 
college. For example, they have 
produced a series on English 
grammar which the college uses. 
They have also made a 14 tape 
series on the fire science program. 
BCTV is run through Cox 
Cable on channel 43, The Learning 
Channel. It runs from 5 p.m. to 
around 9 p.m. Monday through 
Thursday. It is available in the fall 
and spring semesters at Butler.

In the whirlwind of new 
digital technology, there are still 
some that like to be left in the 
dark, such as the members of 
Butler's photography classes. In 
the midst of the darkroom in the

canisters, chemicals, dryers and painters. They challenge students and white film and darkroom

The Trainer 

College sports give 
students the opportunity to get 
discovered at games and practices, 
to go to other schools and hopefully 
pursue their dreams of being a 
great athletic player in a sport they 
love to play. But what happens if 
they are injured or benched, and 
miss their chance of being 
discovered or recognized? Here at 
Butler there is a program designed 
to help prevent an athlete's 
opportunity from passing them by, 
while students get hands on

There are 11 student 
athletic trainers (SAT's) studying 
this year at Butler. Each trainer is 
assigned to one or several sports,

assist in taking care of the players.

All the trainers are planning 
on getting certified as an athletic 
trainer, but each of them have their 

own plans on how they are going to 
use their certification in the future. 
Some want to be a teacher, trainer 
or coach for a high school. Others 
want to work in the medical field 
and be a doctor, physical therapist 
or an orthopedic surgeon. 

To get certified as an 
athletic trainer they have to have a 
certain amount of hours as a 
student athletic trainer and take a 
national test from an accredited 
school such as Emporia State. TC 
has been an ATC for 14 years and 
he said the test is very difficult. 
Statistics say about 45 percent fail 
their first time. The students are 
allowed to take the test as many 
times as it takes to pass it, but they 
have to wait three months before 
they can take it again. Plus, the 
cost of the test is very expensive. 
Each time you take the test it will 
cost you about $300-400. This is 
discouraging to some students, but 
for those with the determination it is 
just one more bar to hurdle.

software driven courses," Kevin 
Belt, computer marketing instructor, 
says. "There is a lot to learn, but if 
that is the field you want to enter, 
it's an excellent class to get your 
feet wet." 

Another class offered is the 
Computer Advertising Design class. 
It teaches the program CorelDraw9. 
This class teaches the basic design 
principles and techniques needed 
to create quality print promotions. 

"Students are not going to 
jump on the computers for the first

Computer Advertising 
Design has been offered at Butler 
County Community College for 
about 12 years. However, last fall 
was the first time that the Computer 
Animation classes were offered. 

Benefits from these classes

can be seen in such careers as 
television animation, commercial 
design, special effects, video 
creation, amusement ride design, 
crime scene reenactments, flight 
simulators, graphic design and web 
page design. 

Drafting students may also 
be interested in the 3D Animation 
classes since it is a Computer 
Aided Drafting related program. 

Other students who may 
find these classes beneficial would 
be broadcast journalists because 
they would be able to create flying 
logos or word art and they would 
learn special effects. 

Computer Advertising 
Design is offered in the spring, 
usually on Tuesdays and 
Thursdays. The Computer 
Animation classes are offered each 

semester in El Dorado. 

One class that is similar to 
Computer Advertising Design is 
offered by the art department. It is 
a course in Graphic Design. 
Instead of using CorelDraw9, they 
use Adobe PhotoShop, which is 
similar. However, Adobe packages 
their programs separately where 
Corel puts them all in one program. 

After completing Computer 
Animation I, students can move on 
to Computer Animation II, where 
they will learn more special effects

Computer Advertising Design is 
deciding what you want to advertise

Story by: f amda Bsarth fhotoe by: Varwn Gwlvm$ 

Students who were formerly 
known as resident ambassadors, 
resident assistants, resident advisors or 
resident aides are now changing their 
name to community facilitators (CF). 
No matter what these students are 
called they contribute a helping hand to 
the housing director, Mr. Dan 

Having a total of 387 residents 
living on campus, housing is a huge 
opportunity for students to get to know 
one another. There is one CF per 
hallway and if any resident loses their 
key or gets locked out, they can come 
to them to get back in, even if it is 2 

"9 have

what 9 say 

and do now 

because the 

residents see 

me as their 

example, " 

says ^Jerruj 




Their job consists of many floor 
and recreational room responsibilities. 
Facilitators must be honest, 
trustworthy, abide and enforce all 
policies and get acquainted with all 
residents in their area. Acting 
sometimes as a counselor, they must 
be able to listen to the residents' 
problems and complaints. They must 
always show examples of good 
leadership and responsibilities within all 
areas of campus. 

Their main job is to report any 
problems that may occur and to 
oversee the appearance of the halls. 
CFs also make sure the recreational 
room is opened and closed on time,

and that there is no damage done. 

The facilitators act as a link between the 
residents of the dorm and Director McFadden. "If a 
resident has a problem and they don't want to come 
talk to me about it they can inform their CF of the 
problem then they can bring it to my attention," says 
Director McFadden. 

Johnson sophomore Jerry Garcia says, "I have 
had to be careful on what I say and do now because 
the residents see me as their example." 

Are you males discouraged about not having 
one of the four 8-plexes? At the moment, only females 
are roomed in the four 8-plex buildings and the board is 
now thinking of giving at least two to male residents 
starting as early as next May. (This may vary 
depending on how many males sign up.) 

"Being a community facilitator takes a lot of 
time and dedication, so make sure it is what you want 
to do," says new member Olathe freshman Mike 

Director McFadden will be leaving the Butler 

family after 1 1 years. He will be 
retiring this next semester.

information on becoming a

What's in 

your closet? 

Student confessions 
of fashion 

Do you know if you are a closet pack-rat and just 
haven't realized it yet? Here a few clues that suggest it's 
past time you cleaned out some of the "junk" in your closet 
that you still claim as clothes. 

1. You have clothes from the 6th grade even 
though that was seven years ago. You keep telling 
yourself that red Michael Jackson jacket will come back in 
style any day now. 

2. People often ask you if you are dressing up for 
a play or costume party. 

3. Every morning before going to school, your roommate yells at 
you for not being ready even though you got dressed for a whole five 

4. When you go shopping, department stores put up their "out for 
lunch" signs but you can see a few customers shopping inside. 

If you answered yes to any one of these questions it's past time you 
cleaned out your closet. And even though it is great to have a lot of clothes, 
it's senseless to have clothes that take up space. 

Cheney Sophomore Laura Atwater says, "No way do I get rid of any 
of my clothes. You never know what will come back in style."

But having a lot of clothes to pick from and having a lot of junk to 
select from is different. It is true that most styles do come back at least once 
but they come back with a different edge for that time. Seventies clothes 
have made a comeback but they're blended with the trends we wear today. 
Perhaps you are one of those students that wear whatever "catches 
your eye" or anything that is clean. 

"I just pick things and hope they match. ..It's like a slot machine," 
says El Dorado freshman Jon Pic. 

Sometimes, though, you have to wear a certain outfit to class like 
wind pants and tennis shoes because you may have 
a p.e. or dance class next and you wouldn't have time 
to change. In this case it's okay to sport caps to class 
but don't make it an everyday habit. 

Oskaloosa sophomore Lindsay Doll says, "I pick 
what to wear based on if I have time to change before 
work, and also on how much time I have to get 

Just know that people do notice that same red 
sweater you wore on Monday and now it is only 
Wednesday. And no one wants to sit by a human 
trash can, so wash your clothes. If you must wear that 
same sweater again, at least let more than one day 
pass by. And don't try to turn it inside out either, 
because you're not fooling anyone. 

Try to think of ways to spruce up your wardrobe. Wear interesting 
things that no one else is but please try to stick to the same time zone. No 
one wants to see you in an outfit that should have been outlawed even in 
the 60s. And wearing shorts in the winter with sandals is just a plain no-no. 
Plus you might catch a cold and no one wants to catch your germs. Just try 
to always remember the one Golden Fashion Rule — you are what you

Many students have a 
variety of ways to get 
themselves ready for class. 

Butler is an institution for learning, not a fashion 
designing school. But that doesn't mean you roll out of 
bed, put on some sweats that are laying on the floor, 
and go to class. You want to look clean and decent so 
that others won't think you don't have good hygiene. A 
few students around campus were asked what they did 
to get ready for class in the morning and how long it 
took them. 

Tennessee freshman Nick Hampton says, "I 
wake up in the morning and take a shower. After I'm 
done taking a shower, I put some baby oil on, clean out 
my ears, and brush my teeth. Then I pick out my 
clothes, iron them if I need to, put deodorant on, look in 
the mirror and out the door." 

Another male student that takes time to 
prepare himself is Kansas City sophomore Greg 
Collins. He takes showers at night because he says it 
saves him time in the morning. Collins wakes up about 
7:25 a.m. and it takes him 30 minutes to prepare 
himself for class. Collins says, "The hardest part in the 
morning is waking up. I hit the snooze button a couple 
of times before I get up." After he does get up he 
brushes his teeth, washes his face, brushes his 
hair,and puts his clothes on. His mom taught him how 

to iron his clothes his freshman year of high school so 
she wouldn't have to do it anymore. 

Now let's take a woman's view on how long it 
takes them to look pretty. 

Eureka sophomore Jaime Gritz says it takes 
her an hour and a half to beautify herself. First she 
takes a 20-30 minute shower. Her roommate doesn't 
mind because she wakes up after Gritz does. After her 
shower she eats Lucky Charms cereal for breakfast.

Then she curls her hair and puts on her makeup. It 
takes her 20 minutes to apply her cosmetics. First, she 
applies her eye makeup, which includes eye shadow, 
eyeliner and mascara. Next, she applies her lipstick on 
but not any foundation or eye concealer. Her next step 
is to find out what is going to wear so she takes another 
20 minutes to pick out her wardrobe. She irons her 
Clothes if needed, and her mom taught her how to iron 
at the age of 15. 

Not every woman takes an hour to primp 
herself; some women can be ready in half an hour. 

Eureka freshman Laura Escareno says it takes 
her 30 minutes to become ready. She goes straight to 
the bathroom and brushes her teeth and hair. She 
takes showers at night to save some time in the 
morning. Then she puts her hair up in a ponytail and 
gets dressed. Also, Escareno dresses casually. She 
doesn't wear any makeup or curl her hair either, which 
saves her time in the morning. 

There is one aspect common among 
everyone; we all take showers. 

Have you ever wondered 
about your handwriting? Have you 
ever thought that it might mean

Welcome to graphology. 
Graphology is the psychology of 
handwriting. It draws conclusions 
from the handwriting about the 

instances, it is used for job 

Many questions come to 
play when analyzing graphology. 
Here are a few questions and 
some answers.* * 

Q. Does it matter if the writer is 
right or left handed? 

A. No. There should not be any 
effect on the analysis.

personality of the writer.* 

It developed about 100 
years ago in Europe and is 
widespread throughout the 
European countries. Before World 
War II, Ludwig Klages began the 
development of graphology. In the 
past 30 years, graphology 
increased on the depth of 
psychology findings. 

Graphology is used for 
several purposes. It is used for 
marriage compatibility, retirement, 
career guidance, child 

development and to view 
personality types. In some 

Q. Does age and gender 

A. Age and gender are only 
used for records and are used for 
future research. Graphology does 
not determine a person's age, 
gender or handedness. 

Q. Is it possible to change 
handwriting from illegible to 

A. Changing your handwriting 
so it is legible shows you would 
like to make an effort to 
communicate. It can also be 
interpreted as wanting to conform. 
Or it could be looked at as a loss 

of originality. 

Handwriting is also like 
our facial expressions, speech 
and actions. Someone who has 
illegible handwriting but changes 
it when he/she knows that 
someone of importance will be

messy house to super cleaning it 
when parents are visiting. A 
person that shows friendly traits in 
his/her writing is like a person 
with a constant smile on their 

"If you are a sloppy 
person it shows in your 
handwriting that you are not very 
organized," said Topeka 
sophomore Laura Blankenship. 

"When I'm mad I start to 
press down harder, but when I'm 
in a good mood my handwriting is 
more flowing," said Augusta 
sophomore Josh Primm. 

A person that has a 
spontaneous sample of 
handwriting is unaware of his/her 
writing which comes from the 
subconscious, thus revealing 
his/her character. 

The change in writing 
made from early school years that 
creates the individuality is not 
considered when analyzing

Q. Can I fool the graphologist 
by forging my handwriting? 

A. By forging your handwriting, 
you are going up against your 
own stamina. Sometimes we 
change the style of writing to 
please the reader. Such kind is 
called pseudo forgery. 

Q. Can you tell anything about 
a person by their signature? 

A. No. It is not the best way to 
analyze a personality. 

Q. Why? 

A. The signature is usually 
illegible and different from normal 
handwriting. And the signature 
does not give enough letters to 
help the graphologist to analyze. 

Now about handwriting 
and your personality. For 
instance, say you have small 
writing that is unadorned, straight 
up and down with few 
connections. That would make 
you precise, able to concentrate, 
efficient and clear thinking. Your 
head rules over your heart and is 

"My handwriting is very 
straightforward, almost military 
style. I try to keep it the same with 
few mistakes as possible," said 


Topeka sophomore Laura 
Blankenship had a handwriting 
analysis done before. 

"I did it to see what job to 
go into and what my personality is 
like," Blankenship said. 

To submit her analysis 
she had to copy a paragraph in 
cursive on half a sheet of paper 
and send it in. 

"The analysis was 
determined by slant, size and the 
way you write your e. By that my 
results showed I'm more of a 
passive and laidback person," 
Blankenship said.

gender or age you are, your 
personality will show through your

Technically speaking, a 
dream is mass hallucination. 
According to the website, ammi 
a dream is a hallucination 
that is also a fantastical 
journey in our sleep that 
either relieves us of 
stress or tries to detract 
us from a certain habit or 
future happening (better 
known as a nightmare). 

On average, we 
spend about one third of 
our lives sleeping. During 
a portion of that time, we 
are also dreaming. While 
asleep, we can gain rest 
and refreshment for our 
hard day of work. 
Essentially, dreams are 
our method of relaxing 
and letting our minds drift away into 
a distant world. While dreaming, we 
can interact with various people, 
places or things. 

When we think about 

dreams we must wonder why they 
occur. There are several 
explanations for this question. It is 


Nakedness: This can represent two things. The first is that 
the dreamer wants freedom and nothing else. The second 
thing is different. Almost everyone has the dream of being 
naked in a public place. That is this nakedness. This 
symbolizes the fear of being exposed or vulnerable. It is 
natural to feel ashamed. 

Chase: If the dreamer is being chased, it means that the 
dreamer is running away from something he or she does not 
think is conquerable; if the dreamer is the one chasing, then 
the person is trying to attain a difficult goal. 

awake, we are using our minds for 

various actions. When we are 

asleep, it is not as obvious how our 

^^^^ minds are at work. To 

keep our minds active 

during sleep we must 


a fact that we all must sleep. We 
constantly go through cycles of 
sleep and wakefulness. During 
each cycle, our minds must be 
active. Obviously when we are 

The Dreaming 

There are four stages of 

Stage 1 : The first stage 
of sleep. It is a very light 
sleep. Stage one 
usually lasts just a few 
minutes. If the sleeper 
is not disturbed by 
anyone or thing, he or 
she will quickly journey 
into stage 2 sleep. 
Stage 2: This is a much 
deeper sleep than stage 1 . Dreams 
start to brew around stage 2. 
Although there are no clear 
images, vague thoughts and ideas 
drift through the sleeper's mind. If 

2 4 

The Grizzly 


Story by Ashley McCullough 

the sleeper remains undisturbed, 
he or she will drift off into stage 3. 
Stage 3: A deeper sleep than 
stage 2. The sleeper's muscles are 
all relaxed by now, and his or her 
heart rate has slowed down. The 
sleeper's blood pressure is also 
falling. His or her breathing is 
steady and even. The sleeper is 
very difficult to wake now. Only two 
things can wake the sleeper now, a 
loud noise or a repetitious calling of 
the sleeper's name. Before long, 
the sleeper will venture into stage 4 

Stage 4: The deepest sleep of all. 
This is the time the dreams occur. 
The sleeper is almost impossible to 
wake now. If there is a loud noise 
or if the sleeper is shaken, it will 
take the sleeper a few seconds to 
wake up. Both the sleeper's blood 
pressure and heart rate fluctuate; 
the sleeper's brain heats up. Then 
comes the REM (or better known 
as rapid eye movement). If the 
sleeper is woken up during this 

time, he or she will be able to 
remember a recent dream. The first 
REM period will last only about ten 
minutes. After that, the sleeper 
goes back into a deep stage 4 
sleep. Again, the sleeper goes into 
an REM stage after a short period 
and cycles through REM and stage 
4 until the sleeper is woken up. 
(Taken from the website 

Because dream sleep is 
the unstable stage of sleep, due to 
all of the hallucinated activity that 
attends it, it is the time when we 
are most likely to spontaneously, or 
naturally, awaken. According to 
the "Dream Doctor" at, 
every morning, prior to our real or 
final awakening, we all awaken 
momentarily several times. 
Typically in a morning dream sleep 
period there are five or six of these 
tendencies toward waking. The 
dreamer may not even open his or 

her eyes, but on an EEG these 
"micro awakenings" are readily 
apparent. This is why when we 
awake in the morning we frequently 
are able to recall a dream we just 
had. Our dreaming literally wakes 
us up. Because of the tendency to 
awaken from dream sleep, and 
because dream sleep always 
comes at the end of a 90 minute 
cycle, we tend to sleep in periods 
that are rough multiples of 90 
minutes-most commonly four 
cycles, or 360 minutes (six hours), 
or five cycles, which is 450 
minutes, or seven and a half hours. 
If you should awaken during the 
night and look at your clock, you 
will see that these 90 minute cycles 
do indeed define our sleep periods; 
our awakenings from sleep are 
almost always in multiples of 90 

You can often influence 
your dreams by giving yourself pre- 
sleep suggestions. Another method 
of influencing dreams is called lucid 

The Grizzly

dreaming, in which you are aware 
you are dreaming while still asleep 
and in the dream. Sometimes 
people experience this type of 
dreaming spontaneously. 

According to the Association for the 
study of Dreams (ASD), it is often 
possible to learn how to increase 
lucid dreaming, and thereby 
increase your capacity to affect the 
course of the dream events as they 
unfold. Some things are easier than 
others to control, and indeed 
complete control is probably never 
possible. Some professional dream 
workers question the advisability of 
trying to control the dream, and 
encourage learning to enjoy and 
understand it instead. 


While interpreting your 
dreams the most important thing to 
keep in mind is that your dreams 
reflect your own underlying 
thoughts and feelings, and that the 
people, actions, settings and 
emotions in your dreams are 
personal to you. ASD states some 
dream experts theorize that there 
are typical or archetypal dreams 
and dream elements that persist 
across different persons, cultures 
and times. Usually, however, the 

same image or symbol will have 
different meanings for different 
people. For example, an elephant 
in a dream can mean one thing to a 
zoo keeper and something quite 
different to a child whose favorite 
toy is a stuffed elephant. Therefore 
books which give a specific 
meaning for a specific dream 
image or symbol, or 'dream 
dictionaries,' are not usually 
helpful. By thinking about what 
each dream element means to you 
or reminds you of, by looking for 
parallels between these 
associations and what is happening 
in your waking life, and by being 
patient and persistent you can 
learn to understand your dreams. It 
can be helpful to keep a dream 
diary and reflect on many dreams 
over a long period of time to get the 
truest picture of your unique dream 
life. There are many good books 
that can help you get started 
interpreting your dreams. 

While there is a tendency 
for us to sleep in 90 minute cycles, 
that is, to awaken at their 
completion and thus from dream 
sleep, there are many variables: 
alarm clocks, children, roommates, 
dogs, cats, street noises and 
needing to go to the bathroom that 

cause us to awaken from all of the 
various stages of sleep. What has 
been demonstrated is that if we 
awaken from dream sleep, we most 
likely will recall dreaming, whereas 
if we awaken from any stage other 
than dream sleep, we most likely 
will not recall a dream or, for that 
matter, having had any dreams 
during the night. Even when we do 
awaken directly from a dream, it 
can still be difficult to recall the 
dream in detail. Most dreams are 
lost by the time we get to the 

To improve your dream 
memory the ASD recommends 
before you fall asleep, remind 
yourself that you want to remember 
your dreams. Keep a paper and 
pen or tape recorder by your 
bedside. As you awaken, try to 
move as little as possible and try 
not to think right away about your 
upcoming day. Write down all of 
your dreams and images, as they 
can fade quickly if not recorded. 
Any distractions will cause the 
memory of your dream to fade. If 
you can't remember a full dream, 
record the last thing that was on 
your mind before awakening, even 
if you have only a vague memory of

Are dreams in color? 

Most dreams are in color, although people may not be 
aware of it, either because they have difficulty 
remembering their dreams or because color is such a 
natural part of visual experience. People who are very 
aware of color while awake probably notice color more 
often in their dreams. 

What does it mean when I have the 
same dream over and over? 

Recurrent dreams, which can continue for years, may 
be treated as any other dream. That is, one may look 
for parallels between the dream and the thoughts, 
feelings, behavior and motives of the dreamer. 
Understanding the meaning of the recurrent dream can 
sometimes help the dreamer resolve an issue that he or 
she has been struggling with for years. 

is it normal to have nightmares? 

Nightmares are very common among children and fairly 
common among adults. Often nightmares are caused 
by stress, traumatic experiences, emotional difficulties, 
drugs or medication or illness. However, some people 
have frequent nightmares that seem unrelated to their 
waking lives. Recent studies suggest that these people 

tend to be more open, sensitive, trusting and emotional 
than average. 

Is it true that if you dream that you 
die or that you hit bottom in a falling 
dream, you will in fact die in your 

No, these beliefs are not true. Many people have 
dreamed that they died or hit bottom in a fall and they 
have lived to tell the tale! You can explore the meaning 
of these kinds of images just as you would explore any 
others that might occur in your dreams. However, if any 
aspect of your dreams worries or distresses you, talk to 
a professional mental health practitioner about your 

Can dreams predict the future? 

There are many examples of dreams that seem to 
predict future events. Some may be due to coincidence, 
faulty memory or an unconscious tying together of 
known information. A few laboratory studies have been 
conducted of predictive dreams, as well as clairvoyant 
and telepathic dreams, but the results were varied as 
these kinds of dreams are difficult to study in a 
laboratory setting.

What ever happened to 
good clean fun? Well, we lost it the 
second we were introduced to 
beads, braids, beer and drugs (I'm 
referring to the 1960s in case any 
of you weren't following). It seems 
like anymore, it's rare for someone 
to have a good time without 
partying and drinking, especially 
among college students. There's 
tons of excuses, too, "I don't have 
any time," "I don't have any 
money," and the most common 
amongst a thousand other lame 
excuses, "There's just nothing to 
do!" This particular frame of mind 
is most popular for those 
out-of-staters who come from big 
cities like Dallas, New Orleans and 
even New York City. Carlos Banks, 

Dallas sophomore, says "It's too 
slow pace and old school up here. 
There is just nothing to do!" Well, 
think again you pessimistic people, 
because believe it or not, there is 
stuff to do, even for poor college 
students like yourselves (no 
offense, please!). 

First off, there's the 
obvious: the movies. I for one 
never get bored going to a theatre 
and checking out the latest flicks, 
especially at Dickinson Theatres 
located right off K-96 on north Rock

various movie theatres including

the west side. The Premier Palace 
Theatre located at the corner of 

Kellogg and Greenwich has 
matinee shows for only $4, evening 


shows for only $6, and on Friday 
and Saturday nights, midnight 
shows are reduced back to $4. 
The Starlite Drive-In located at 
MacArthur and Hydraulic in Wichita 
and the Star-Vu Drive-ln located at 
Towanda Ave. and Haverhill Rd. in 
El Dorado are also great ways to 
check out a movie at reasonable

As for a little bit more local 
fun, El Dorado does, yes I said 
does, have a few things to 
check out. Take for instance 
Coutts Memorial Museum of Art 
at the corner of Main and 
Central. The museum is open 
Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
from 1-5 p.m. and Tuesday and 
Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon. 
To top this great idea off, 

admission is free of charge, so no 
excuses all you excessive-excuse- 
making-tight-wads! There is El 
Bowl Family Fun Center located on 

south Haverhill Rd. and El Dorado 
Rollerena on West Central. El 
Dorado is no longer a stranger to 
live entertainment. On Feb. 24, the 
old Hot Rod Cafe on south Main 
was opened to the public as the 
new El Dorado Dinner Theatre. It 
may not be Broadway, but it 
certainly is something interesting 
and entertaining that everyone 
should try out! 

See Carlos, there are 
things to do, even in Kansas! 
Wichita and El Dorado may not be 
Dallas, New Orleans or New York 
City, but now that you have some 
new ideas to break away from the 
same old routine, I really hope that 
the next time I ask someone what 
they do for fun, they'll tell me 
something new! Oh yeah, there 
was one other excuse that people 
tend to lean on to get out of looking 
for something fun to do, "Wichita is 
just too far." Come on people, it's a 
30 minute drive! You're probably 
caught in traffic going absolutely 
nowhere in the big cities for more 
than that, so buck up trooper, suck 
it up soldier, get off your lazy — oh 
sorry. Anyway, just have some fun, 
it's waiting on you!
